Summer Loving - Grease Prequel

[ Edited ]

Paramount recently announced a prequel to Grease is in the planning stages. 

 

It will center on Sandy and Danny's summer romance during summer break. Some are speculating it will be told from each one's viewpoints as they remember it - Sandy, a sweet romance, and Danny, a little more passionate. According to one release Danny, as a lifeguard, comes to Sandy's aid when she gets caught in the waves. 

 

John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John have both said they will appear in the film, in some capacity, maybe grandparents (?)

 

It will be interesting to see who they hire to play Danny and Sandy. Of course, we won't see the Rydell High group, since Danny tells them about his experience - he obviously didn't see them much during the summer. Maybe the writers will work them in somehow, but I don't see how. 

 

So what do you think? I'm a huge fan of Grease, and I will look forward to this. Some are saying the magic can't be captured again, and I agree with that, but I think it will be cute.

 

I'm just worried they will make it a little more risque to attract the millenials and Generation Z group! 

 

It will be a musical, with new songs written for it. Smiley Happy

 

Now I can't get the song out of my head! Smiley Wink

 

 

Summer loving had me a blast
Summer loving happened so fast
I met a girl crazy for me
Met a boy cute as can be

 

Summer days drifting away to oh oh the summer nights

 

Tell me more, tell me more
Did you get very far
Tell me more, tell me more
Like does he have a car

 

She swam by me she got a cramp
He ran by me got my suit damp
I saved her life she nearly drowned
He showed off splashing around

 

Summer sun something’s begun but oh oh the summer nights

 

Tell me more, tell me more
Was it love at first sight?
Tell me more, tell me more
Did she put up a fight?

 

Took her bowling in the arcade
We went strolling drank lemonade
We made out under the dock
We stayed out till 10 o’clock

 

Summer fling don’t mean a thing but oh oh the summer nights.

 

Tell me more, tell me more
But you don’t gotta brag
Tell me more, tell me more
Cause he sounds like a drag

 

He got friendly holding my hand
She got friendly down in the sand
He was sweet just turned eighteen
Well she was good you know what I mean

 

Summer heat boy and girl meet but oh oh the summer nights.

 

Tell me more, tell me more
How much dough did he spend?
Tell me more, tell me more
Could she get me a friend?

 

It turned colder that’s where it ends
So I told her we’d still be friends
Then we made our true love vow
Wonder what she’s doing now

 

Summer dreams ripped at the seams but oh those summer nights
